Montana 10-year moose study continues

from goHUNT

With nearly four years of a 10-year moose study completed, Montana biologists are still in the process of collecting data to figure out why some moose are struggling while others are not. Researchers have collared cow moose within three different populations in Big Hole Valley, Cabinet Mountains, and the Rocky Mountain Front. According to the Billings Gazette, a total of 90 (30 per selected area) moose have been collared for the purpose of collecting data to form conclusions as to why some female moose seem to have it harder than others. Additionally, researchers are currently in the process of swapping the traditional tracking collars with GPS collars in order to keep better tabs on the moose being studied. "The better collars will allow the researchers to more quickly find dead moose to assess what it is that has killed them," Nick DeCesare, the Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks biologist leading the study, told the Billings Gazette. more
